 Thanks "73".

 In 2010, New Haven was the second largest city in Connecticut with a population of about 130,000 people. It is also home to Yale University. As well as those who have been to the original Best Pizza in Connecticut, "Pepe's" on Worcester St. Once owned and operated by the original Pepe family. Today Pepe's has franchised out to add many restaurants, including one in Yonkers, NY.     

 Run wise, and work wise, New Haven continues to be the busiest fire dept in Connecticut. I think they have 9 Engines, 6 Ladders, 2 Squad Co's (operating very similar to the FDNY Squads). NHFD also runs 2 paramedic units called Emergency 1 and 2.

 The City of New Haven, like many other cities, had it's own set of War Years during the 1980s after the FDNY War Years. They were averaging 40-50 working fires a month, according to a newsletter that had been published monthly called: "The Alarm Room Newsletter" by a Hartford Firefighter.

 Later the New Haven Fire Dept led the way in Connecticut, fighting arson by combining fire and police officers working together and following records of those areas that had the most fires.
